How do Echinacea and Portulaca seeds look??
This may be a silly question to some of you, but I can't quite figure out how to harvest seeds from these plants. I have lots of Echinacea right now, their heads are brown , with almost black spikes. I was looking for the seeds at the base of the spikes, but what I find there is soft, sort of triangular shaped, does not look like a seed to me.
And the portulaca were gorgeous all summer, with double flower heads. I would like to safe money next year by starting them from seed. Again,there are soft round things where the flowers used to be, but they don't look like seeds to me...
Your help , with pictures, or clear descriptions, would be greatly appreciated!
Would I need to keep these seeds in the house, or in an unheated garage ?
